zombie haiku (yes, they really are everywhere!)

Wednesday, August 26, 2009 |

Velvet at vvb32reads is hosting a September Zombies week (running August 29 - September 5), and it starts in just 3 days!

As a teaser and an incentive to get your brains zombified, she’s holding a contest to win a copy of Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry for Your...Brains by Ryan Mecum. It sounds deliciously horrible, if that makes any sense. Or maybe just like a lot of silly fun...

You can get a contest entry just by commenting on her post, but you’ll have much better odds if you compose a zombie haiku. Go forth and…(de)compose!

As far as I know, this is my first attempt (ever!) at haiku. I had to ask my sister what haiku structure entailed (5-7-5? That's it?!). Created on the spot. I apologize. But I laughed and enjoyed writing it, so maybe this is new and amazing entertainment?
